Read full description of the books:
Although he wrote a handful of other works, Austrian Robert Musil's (1880-1942) reputation as one of the greatest modern German writers is based almost entirely on The Man Without Qualities. The first three parts were published in the early '30s, and Musil continued working on it when he flied for Geneva in 1938. Even unfinished, this parallel investigation of Ulrich (the rather detached, meditative ''man without qualities'') and the final years of Hapsburg Austria, is some 1200 pages.
A new two-volume boxed translation by PEN translation prize winner Sophie Wilkins is increased by half by Burton Pike's translation of posthumous papers that include an unfinished draft of part four and Musil's notes, musings and sketches for subsequent installments.
